‘Motorcycle Song’ by Diane Siebert, illustrated by Leonard Jenkins
My daughter loves this book and it feeds her motorcycle/dirt bike addiction. It is written in rhyme, and includes colorful pictures along with descriptive verse concerning mechanic lingo, motorcycle brands, and what a person could do while on a motorcycle ride. I like that the author cuts through the stereo-type of just tattooed guys in leather jackets and chains riding motorcycles. The paintings are full of color and depict scenes that introduce children into road signs and different kinds of bikes. We especially enjoyed this book the day that Elizabeth rehearsed the ENTIRE thing along with me, which was on our third round of having it out of the library. The following time we read it together, she felt inspired to change some of the words to make silly meanings. Definitely a two-thumbs-up. Good for girls and boys. For ages 4 – 8.
